Some of the responses we have recently received from our students...

Thanks to everyone at West Pennine for their support in getting me to the level to pass both my mod 1 and mod 2 tests.

Special thanks to the geezer from the freezer who is so chilled out - and gave me a brilliant understanding of how to use the bike and the many techniques on how to be a good rider.

Mod 2 test day came - and I rode the way you guys taught me - and passed with no drama - thanks so much for all your support.

I will be booking in for some advanced training once I take delivery of my new motorbike - thank you once again


Just want to say a massive thank you to Dave and Yvonne for all your help and patience with me this week especially over all the trouble with my driver number (go easy on Alan i think he might be dyslexic, only joking).

Please pass on a Huge thanks to Alan for all his help and tuition, he's an absolute gent and i really couldn't have got to test standard without him, he's taught and improved my riding and safety so much a thank you doesn't merit how much it means to have my licence because of him and Dave.

All the best for the future and please pass on a link for any review sites you use cos I'm more than happy to give a glowing report of my time at your riding school

Kindest regards

I just wanted to thank you for all the support I received from the instructors during my training with you. Terry was great and I'd like to say a special thanks to Chris who instilled so much confidence in me and taught me the skills I need to ride successfully and pass my modules 1 & 2 to gain aFull bike licence.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking it up with you. It was serious training but we had a good laugh along the way too..

Whilst I'm thinking about it, do you have any information on the Advanced Riding Day that you do? I did talk to your instructor Steve back at the training Centre about it briefly yesterday, who told me that he does the training.

I am interested in taking it up, but maybe when the weather is much better ?

Hi , I promised Chris on Thursday I would Email & pass on my thanks so hear goes : Firstly a big thank-you to all the instructors who had the misfortune to suffer me , Chris took the brunt Including damage to his own bike :-( but he remained chilled & patient throughout , always ready to answer the questions & explain in detail . Then the big fellah , Allen , who's clear advice & demonstration was I believe the reason I got through my MOD 1 , especially that dreaded U turn . Then Terry who really had the bad luck of given me one to one tuition for a whole day.! Not forgetting Yvonne who just's keeps plugging away behind the scenes organising everything , from theory tests through to Mod 2 . Seriously guys , I came on the direct access course having not ridden for over 30 years and with only 5 days to spare I opted to return to take my Mod 2 at a later date. I had a great week despite the weather being "bobbins " and came away with a good grounding and the confidence to return for Mod 2. I did this on Thursday and poor Chris had the task of getting me ready for test and after just a couple of hours "pick up " on a different bike I took mod 2 and the rest his history as they say.! Once again many thanks to all , 1 weeks residential course & a full bike licence later, I would have no hesitation in recommending WPM to friends and colleagues , keep up the good work !

I'd just like to say a big thank you to Dave & all the guys there at West Pennine for helping me complete my DAS mod on Monday 23rd November, and especially to Steve for all your help – i couldn't have asked for a better instructor!

All the best and good luck with the move!

Dave just a quick mail to thank you and your staff on my recent direct access course. i took the 4 day option and thanks to Chris, Allen and especially Steve who helped me with the difficult slow stuff i passed module 2 first time. All the best for the future, I had a great time and it was well worth the daily commute from West Yorkshire.

Hi West Pennine, just like to thank you for the training I received between the 18-20th November, Having successfully passed my test on the Thursday. I would like to thank Alan the instructor who helped me get through the DAS first time. maybe it was the 100 lashes if I didn?t pass... !!! Thanks Again Neal Postlethwaite

Just a quick note to say a massive Thank Youto all the team at West Pennine for the excellent DAS course I have attended and successfully completed this week. I passed my practicle test today with only 4 minors ( 3 of those were down to nerves ). The knowledge, guidence and confidence that Steve, Alan & Chris have given me will prove invaluable for years of safe riding. Thanks once again and all the best for the future.

Hello Dave / Yvonne

Well no one was more surprised than me when the DSA Examiner told me I’d passed. (I was a complete novice with no bike experience 5 days ago)

Can I thank both of you and everyone at WPM for making my training relaxing and enjoyable. Everything was so well organised from CBT, theory test, right through to practical test.

Can you pass my thanks onto John who took me through CBT and especially Kevin who took me from CBT through to conversion?

When I gain some more experience I will definitely come back for advanced training.

Best regards to all the instructors
